HÀ NỘI – The Hà Nội Transport Station Joint-stock Company will assign 700 more coaches to meet the passenger demand during holidays this month, director of the company Nguyễn Tùng Anh said.
The coming holidays include the three-day death anniversary of the Hùng Kings, starting from April 16, as well as National Reunification Day on April 30 and Labour Day on May 1, which will last four days in all.
Under the plan, 200 additional coaches will be assigned to Giáp Bát Terminal, 400 to Mỹ Đình Terminal and 100 to Gia Lâm Terminal.
The number of passengers was expected to increase sharply on some routes, such as the routes to Phú Thọ, Quảng Ninh, Thanh Hóa and Nghệ An, besides Lào Cai, Sơn La and Điện Biên provinces, Anh said.
The number of passengers could be double or three times the number on normal days from the afternoon of April 29, and would start falling from the afternoon of April 30, he said.
Many people will return to Hà Nội on May 3, so 400 more buses will be operated. Giáp Bát, Gia Lâm and Mỹ Đình terminals will have 150, 100 and 150 more buses, respectively.
Anh said inspectors would closely watch the coaches during these days to prevent substandard ones from being operated.
The company will also join hands with the local traffic police and transport inspectors to check illegal terminals. -- VNS
